Meetings (again and again)
Make a reminder for everybody in the room just before a meeting starts - those who are not going to participate actively should leave the room. I assume that you apply this kaizen when organize meetings - http://agilemindstorm.com/2013/08/06/2-seconds-management-kaizen/
Don’t motivate people, cause most probably you will demotivate them
Meetings is the most dangerous thing for companies and people motivation. Another improvement that going to apply in my daily life:
Decline meetings if you can’t or not going to contribute. Save the world!
p.s. this rule is much easier to apply when this kaizen is applied - http://agilemindstorm.com/2013/08/06/2-seconds-management-kaizen/
Huge improvements are difficult and require a lot of energy. But what simple things can be done?
From now going to add everybody as optional into my meeting requests. Those who are interested will show up… Otherwise my topic sux and not interesting for community.
Hope this will help to save other’s time
